Same here, only the one CPUZ CPU tab in that zip file.

Can you try using the "Snipping Tool" you can select just the CPUZ window, it will make it easier for everyone to see?

Have a look at the tutorial on uploading pictures to the Forum, it's easy after the first time you get through it.

For snipping tool, start button> in the search box type 'Snipping tool' >enter.
Select the area you want to copy, save to a convient place.

The info will help us with the next steps.

Have you changed RAM or NB voltages in BIOS before?
If not ,then read the section in your motherboard manual, this will help with the next steps.

Good information.

This type of error can be caused by:
Bad RAM or bad RAM settings
Bad motherboard slots or other problems

Since returning these one by one or all at once can be time consuming, if you would like we can try to adjust some of the RAM and NB settings.
As mentioned previously, you may end up RMA'ing the RAM, but this is worth a try.

If you want to proceed, look in your BIOS and post the RAM voltage and NB voltage (which is MCH Core).

Next time you have the computer off for long enough to test the cold boot symptoms, put your RAM in slots 2 & 4, just to comfirm.

Are the DRAM timings in auto? or set manually?

Let us know if you want to continue with these adjustments.

There are newer BIOS updates listed on your mobo site, there is no FF listed.
Your BIOS version (from the CPUZ Mainboard tab) is FFb, this is a beta version and could be causing problems.
This is a quote from the Gigabyte website.
What is a BETA?
BETA describes a new version that is reliable yet may not include all the features of the final product. During this phase we are previewing new features and gathering customer input to insure our product provides the best experience possible.
You might want to contact the company you got your computer from and question them if a beta BIOS from 5 months ago, and two full versions later is "Ready to go".
-It is OEM version ( i Self-Built it online through a PC company that sent it to me "Ready-to-go"

If your comfortable updating the BIOS and it won't void your warranty, I would update it to the current listed FH.
If your not comfortable with doing that, I would let the PC company upgrade the BIOS and fix the RAM problem.

Let us know if you want to continue, we will be here to help you.

I don't understand what RMA'ing the RAM means.
I don't know where to go to find the RAM and NB voltage, nor do i know what MCH Core is. :P
I also don't know where to see if the DRAM timings are auto or set manually.

Please explain

Edit: Also my motherboard manual says that for 2 modules to work they need to be placed in slot 1 and 3.

Let's do it.
Sending it to Athens to the company i got it from will take weeks because the transportation truck drivers are on strike all over the country (Typical Greece :P )

So how do we update the BIOS the safest way??
